Pop Haydn meets Nico

I met a member of the Magic Castle for the first time last night as I worked the W. C. Fields Bar. He is a wonderful artist named Nico. Nico is Nicolas Marlet, a top animation and character artist at Dreamworks. He showed me some of the sketches he drew while watching me, and gifted me with one:

From Wikipedia:

Nicolas “Nico” Marlet is a French-American animation artist, character designer and skilled drummer. He is best known for his character design work in the Dreamworks films Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon, although early in his career he worked on Disney television shows such as TaleSpin and DuckTales. He also worked on an unproduced animated version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats. His work has appeared in several “art of” books, including The Art of Kung Fu Panda, The Art of How to Train Your Dragon, The Art of Bee Movie, and his own limited edition sketchbook containing some of his personal works. ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nico_Marlet

I love working at the Magic Castle. I am always meeting new and amazing people.

About Pop Haydn

I am not originally from the 21st Century myself, but have been stuck here by accident--not entirely my fault--with a bunch of other maroons from another very different time and place... Nevertheless, my companions and I love it here and just like everyone else we are just trying to get by in this exciting and progressive era. With a variety show of steampunk-oriented magic, comedy and music, Pop's company entertains and sells a few bottles of Amazing Miracle Oil, Wonder Elixer, or Magnetized Water.
